Barr, Roseanne – In a move that the Internet assures us is not a joke, comedienne Barr is seeking the presidential nomination for the Green Party. Whatever her positions, she couldn’t seem any crazier than the current slate of presidential aspirants.

Impersonators, Celebrity – A scuffle broke out today on Hollywood Boulevard when a Catwoman impersonator pepper-sprayed a Jack Sparrow impersonator after she was harassed by an Ozzy Osbourne impersonator. Had it been the real Ozzy, it probably wouldn’t have been the first time he had been sprayed while trying to eat kitty-butt.

King, Zalman – Director of such late-night, erotic, sneak-a-peek-while-the-parents-sleep cable hits such as 9 ½ Weeks, Wild Orchid, and Red Shoe Diaries died of cancer Friday at age 70. It’s a wonder he kept it up for so long.

Lambert, Adam – Saying that his remarks were taken out of context, the American Idol darling has tried to tamp down rumors that he will be touring with Queen. Come on, guys. This joke is just too easy.

Letterman, David – Gen X wasn’t really old enough to appreciate Johnny Carson in his prime, so Letterman has been our late night stalwart. And what a hilarious ride it has been. Congratulations, Dave, and thank you for giving us 30 years of late night gold.

O’Donnell, Rosie – Several websites are reporting that funny-lady (?) Rosie O’Donnell has laid off staff of The Rosie Show due to poor ratings. Funny, we thought she had laid off staff a long time ago.
